Bronze Medal winner at the San Francisco Chronicle wine competition! Syrah is a great warm climate grape and you will understand why after tasting this one. Grown on the bluffs of the San Joaquin River on the Saviez Ranch, it was hand-picked at the peak of ripeness to make a wine that is full bodied, soft and balanced. This wine goes perfect with red meat, poultry and pasta dishes. You will not be disappointed with this syrah!
Ruby Cabernet is a cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Carignan done in the 50’s at UC Davis. It was selected because of its abiltity to produce wines with qualities similar to coastal Cabernet Sauvignons but in the warmer climate of the San Joaquin Valley. This Ruby Cabernet is from a vineyard in western Fresno County and was harvested at full ripeness to produce a BIG wine. It’s soft tannins and high ABV are balanced by its 5% residual sugar and mild fruit character to produce a very intense and delicious wine.
